Where can I recycle?

If you’ve got non-electrical DIY equipment that you don’t need anymore, and it could be used by someone else, why not:

Sell it!

  • If you’re getting rid of unwanted, working  DIY equipment, try selling it on Gumtree,in your the local newspaper, at car boot sales.

Donate or swap it!

  • Ask family, friends, work colleagues or neighbours if they have a use for your ladder, saw or pasting table;
  • Look out for local swapping events. You could even go online to give them away;
  • If you want to get rid of it quickly advertise it for free on Gumtree.

Try donating your equipment to a charity shop, a furniture re-use organisation or local community project. Try searching the internet or contact your local council to find your nearest re-use organisation. Always check first that the organisation accepts these kind of items.

Equipment that cannot be re-used by someone else can often be recycled, especially items made from wood and metal.

How should I recycle it?

  • Wooden and metal furniture can often be recycled at your local recycling centre.
